Review for Community United Effort (CUE), Wilmington, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I heard about Community United Effort (CUE) while I was following the disappearance and murder of Morgan Harrington. I looked into the organization and I was very impressed with Monica Caison and the professionalism of her organization. I was very interested in volunteering and finally joined 3 1/2 years ago. Since then I have become a Board Member and I am amazed at the hard work done by all of our volunteers. With CUE, once we are invited in by either the family or law enforcement, we advocate for the missing and their family, even after a missing person is brought home. Many of our family members become CUE members. Monica hosts an annual conference in March and brings together families of the missing, searchers, law enforcement and instructors from many different areas in the world of the missing. It's time for families to help each other, learning about new ways of investigating a missing person, certification in first aid and CPR, etc. I consider all of the volunteers to be a member of my CUE family and so happy I joined.

Review for Community United Effort (CUE), Wilmington, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Not only is Community United Effort there to help organize the search for the missing person, we are there as support for the family during the search and long after....anytime you call CUE's number, chances are Monica will answer. It doesn't matter if it is day, night, weekend or holiday...Not one volunteer, all the way up to Monica gets one cent for what they do and they do it gladly. Some of the things CUE does for the families include...searches, support to families during interviews and getting the word out, fliers, candlelight vigils, Road Tour to bring awareness of the missing and an annual conference for families, searchers, law enforcement, first responders, etc...the conference provides support for the families by having other families that understand what they are going through, education for searchers and first responders and a candlelight vigil that honors missing people that have been found and their family members and also recognition of those volunteers that go above and beyond...Monica gives her all willingly, sometimes missing special times with her own family....

Monica works tirelessly to bring the missing home. She also works tirelessly to bring attention to bring awareness and education to her community. Among other events, the yearly conference brings people together either searchers, law-enforcement or families of the missing, to provide education and opportunities for families to learn from one another. Her Road to Remember tour brings awareness across the United States to the plight of the missing and their families. C. U. E. provides various types of search and rescue, K9, horses, ATVs and also on water... All at no cost to the families of the missing.
